A 7.0 workflow process with persistence marked as Auto Persist and is persistent. NOTE: In some releases earlier than Siebel CRM version 8.0, workflow persistence was used for monitoring a workflow process, and persistence was controlled by adjusting two settings that can apply to individual steps of a workflow: frequency and level. With version 8.0 and higher, process monitoring is separate from workflow persistence, and it is not necessary for persistence to be set for a long-running workflow because the long-running workflow is set by default. For a 7.0 workflow that had persistence set, the Auto Persist flag is automatically set to YES during upgrade and import. A persistent workflow process is automatically purged after it finishes running. Defining Persistence for a Workflow Process For a long-running workflow process, persistence occurs by default. For an interactive workflow process, you set the Auto Persist flag in the Process Designer. CAUTION: Defining Workflow Persistence for a large number of workflow processes can result in the creation of a large number of records in the S_WF_PROP_VAL table. For more information, see “Avoiding Excessive Records in the S_WF_PROP_VAL Table” on page 242 . To define persistence for a workflow process 1 Locate the workflow process you must modify. For more information, see “Locating a Workflow Process in the Workflow Processes Object List Editor” on page 43 . 2 In the Auto Persist property, choose YES by using the drop down picklist.

Alternatively, you can define a custom workflow policy program by copying Run Workflow Process, then adding program arguments that correspond to workflow process properties. This way, you can use the policy program to pass data to the workflow process properties. For more information, see Chapter 14, “Defining a Custom Workflow Policy.” To start a workflow process from a workflow policy 1

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
